~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My (G) little girl met a (D) new friend (Cadd9) just the other day
On the (G) playground at school (D) between the (Cadd9) tires and the swing
(G) But she came (D) home with tear-filled (Cadd9) eyes
When she (G) said to me "daddy (D), Alyssa (Cadd9) lies"

(G) Well, I just (D) brushed it off at (Cadd9) first
(G) Cause I didn't (D) know how much my (Cadd9) little girl had been hurt
(G) Or the (D) things that she had (Cadd9) seen
I wasn't (G) ready when I (D) said you can tell (Cadd9) me

She said Alyssa (G) lies to the (D) classroom
Alyssa (Cadd9) lies everyday at (D) school
Alyssa (G) lies to the (D) teachers
As she (Cadd9) tries to cover every (D) bruise

My (G) little girl laid her (D) head down that (Cadd9) night to go to sleep
As I (G) stepped out the room, I (D) heard her say a (Cadd9) prayer so soft and sweet
(G) God bless (D) my mom and my (Cadd9) dad
And (G) my new friend Alyssa (D), oh, I (Cadd9) know she needs you bad

Because Alyssa (G) lies to the (D) classroom
Alyssa (Cadd9) lies everyday at (D) school
Alyssa (G) lies to the (D) teachers
As she (Cadd9) tries to cover every (D) bruise

(Em) I had the worst night of (Cadd9) sleep in years
As I (G) tried to think of a way to calm her (D) fears
(Em) I knew exactly what I (Cadd9) had to do
But when we (G) got to school on Monday, I heard the (D) news

My (G) little girl asked (D) me why every(Cadd9)body looked so sad
The (G) lump in my throat grew (D) bigger with every (Cadd9) question that she asked
(G) Until I felt the (D) tears run down my (Cadd9) face
And I (G) told her that (D) Alyssa wouldn't (Cadd9) be at school today

She doesn't (G) lie in the (D) classroom
She doesn't (Cadd9) lie anymore at (D) school
Alyssa (G) lies with (D) Jesus
Because there's (Cadd9) nothing anyone would (D) do

(G) Tears (D) filled my (Cadd9) eyes when my (Em) little girl (D) asked me (Cadd9) why
Alyssa (G) lies (D) (Cadd9)
Oh daddy, oh daddy tell me (G) why (D) (Cadd9)
Alyssa lies (G)
